A few days ago one of my facebook buddies (my profile on facebook) commented about how he was:
supporting Skynet by linking Facebook and Twitter.
Having earlier taken the “Could you survive a Zombie Invasion?” quiz, I knew we would be safe from zombies as I am apparently all that is man when it comes to destroying zombies. Skynet, however, worries me greatly. Thus, my comment in response to the Skynet connection was:
Lucky for us the zombies will come before Skynet. We’ve got a chance against zombies, Skynet will p0wn the heck out of us.
To which his amazing comment was:
Vin Diesel + Zombies = Vin Diesel …. Vin Diesel + Skynet = Skynet …. I see what you are getting at….
Which brings us to the The Vin Diesel Formula for Whether You Should Proceed with Potentially Dangerous Technology, which is basically:
Vin Diesel + ___insert potentially dangerous technology____ = x
Where if x = Vin Diesel, you may proceed with the potentially dangerous technology (you hear that UMass BioMedical center directly across from the cemetery in Jamaica Plain? – keep doing what you do).
However, if x = potentially dangerous technology, immediately stop, halt, do not proceed further.
Thanks to @nmarsceill for the The Vin Diesel Formula for Whether You Should Proceed with Potentially Dangerous Technology. [Follow me on Twitter, so we can strategize during the zombie/Skynet/Cylon attack(s)].

Yeah it can be kind of creepy with all the new technology. The idea of uncontrollable computers able to think for themselves and zombies doesn’t sound very tempting. although i don’t think there ever will be such thing as a zombie…. at least i hope so
Jesse´s last blog post..Waiting for megadrum pcb
Jesse, I love new technology but we are starting to enter a few realms where databases are storing tons of information on us, perhaps too much information. What’s important is ensuring companies allow us to control that information.
I don’t think we’ll ever have zombies either, but if I could choose I’d take zombies over uncontrollable sentient computer robots any day. Zombies are slow and stupid, robots/computers are tough, quick and smart.
for a moment there, i thought you were talking about vin diesel the movie star.
I was web mom. The formula basically looks to see if Vin Diesel (or at least the bad-ass characters he plays) could beat up ___insert dangerous technology___. If he could, we have nothing to worry about. But if he can’t…well, let’s just say it’s best that day never come.
